I've been blessed with a lot of cherry tomatoes so I'm going to use them. I picked sixteen off of the plant today.
I'm going to make a cherry tomato/bacon pizza pie with them.
First, I slice each one in half.
Then marinated in olive oil for a day.
With a can of San Marzano tomatoes, some salt, garlic, and oregano (also from the garden), I boiled it for 20 minutes, then simmered for 2 hours. Near the end, we added a teaspoon of sugar.
I was going to buy a premade pizza dough from our local Italian deli but my wife insisted on making a homemade dough. Also, my son insisted on pepperoni on top, so what started as a tomato pie ended up being a pizza with a really delicious, fresh tasting sauce.
